Abstract

Some very low-end devices are expected to rely on address-based authentication, even though that is not a high-security mechanism. In particular, they may wish to permit access by 'local' peers only, for some value of 'local'. This memo proposes a new Router Advertisement option to supply a list of privileged prefixes.
